Cartagines have denied Torneo de Invierno champions Alajuelense a spot in playoffs of Costa Rica’s Primera Division with a 1-0 win.

In the final round before the playoffs in Costa Rica’s second half of the season, the Torneo de Verano, Cartagines wrapped up second position in the standings after their win over Alajuelense and the top-of-the table clash between Herediano and Deportivo Saprissa finished scoreless.

Sunday’s results left Herediano top of the table, meaning they will face Perez Zeledon in a two-legged semi-final, while Cartagines will play against Saprissa.

Randall Brenes scored the winner for Cartagines against Alajuelense, who triumphed in the playoffs of the first half of the season.

The result left Alajuelense on 34 points, one point adrift of Perez Zeledon, who lost 1-0 to Uruguay.

In other results in the Primera Division’s final round, San Carlos completed an impressive 4-2 win away to Belen Siglo XXI, Santos de Guapiles thumped Carmelita 4-1 and Puntarenas defeated Limon 2-1.
